With all that is happening in the world right now, there aren’t a lot of music festivals going ahead for you to attend. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t prepare yourself for when the time comes. You will usually find that some of the biggest hard dance festivals all take place around the same time, summer.
Many festival-goers these days believe that just one festival isn’t enough and they will try to make most of the festival season and go to as many festivals as possible. While this can be some of the funniest days of the year, you need to ensure that you are properly prepared so that you can take full advantage of what’s on offer.
While there may not be many festivals in the near future, they are sure to be back at some point, and you certainly want to ensure that you are ready for them. Have a read on below on how to best prepare for the next hard dance festival season:
While there may be a lot of different hard dance festivals you can attend, you may not have the funds to go to them all, especially if travel is involved in getting there. So, a good idea would be to make a list of the top music festivals you want to attend in order of priority.
You will need to think about things other than the ticket itself, like how much is it going to cost to go the festival. If the festival is in another country, it’s going to cost more to get there. Think about how you can make your funds stretch further so you can go to as many festivals as possible.
Sun Protection and Other Essential Items
Most music festivals take place in in summer so you need to ensure you are prepared for the hot days that lie ahead, you don’t want to have to leave the festival early because of heat stroke or anything like that. Things you need to bring for sun protection would be a hat, sunglasses, sunscreen and suitable clothing.
You can’t forget other essential items like your ticket itself, phone, portable charger, etc. Throughout the day it is important to remain hydrated, so make sure you drink lots of water. It can be easy to go over the top at a hard dance music festival, especially if it is over a couple of days, but remember you are there for a good time AND a long time.
Update Your Playlist
If you know which artists are going to be performing at the music festival you are attending, then make sure you download some of their songs to your playlist. That way when you hear the song being performed live you will be able to jam out to it that much harder.
At hard dance music festivals there is usually a combination of headline acts and relatively unknown acts. It’s a good idea to listen to some of the unknown acts before the festival so you know if the act is someone you would be interested in listening to live. There will usually be a lot of different acts on at the same time, so you want to ensure you use your time wisely and go see artists you want.
Update Your Clothes
If you are a regular festival goer then you probably will need to update your festival clothes each year, or just recycle little bits and pieces. People usually like to take photos at festivals and it can become easily clear that you wear the same thing year in and year out.
